How It Works
1 Get evaluated
If you’re a good candidate for clear aligners, your dentist will take photos and x-rays, use a scanner or impressions to capture the shape of your teeth, and submit your prescription to ClearCorrect.
2 Wear your aligners
We’ll make a series of aligners customized to apply pressure to the teeth that you want to move.
Your dentist will check your progress periodically and give you new sets of aligners. You’ll wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day, progressing through each step until your treatment is done.
